Theory of Change
Using wrestling as a tool and motivator BYW teaches youth to successfully overcome socio-economic challenges that lead to educational gaps, poor health and negative community relationships, imparting skills such as self reliance, discipline and commitment to others that apply both on and off the mat, in school and beyond.
Our staff and our coaches are dedicated to our mission. They bring experience, talent, and passion to ensure that every child can wrestle to their fullest potential, while teaching the skills and life lessons that apply to school and beyond.
The results of the program speak for themselves. Based on a study by Up2Us Sports, our wrestlers outperformed their peers on the PACER fitness test after training for 12 weeks.
